Fall is Here Redux


FALL IS HERE, Op. 12B – so goes my song below written on an early autumn day in the Northeast back in 1980 on a familial visit to Boston:

Fall is here,
Summer’s past:
No word yet
Of you dear,
Since the time
We last met.

Nature’s turning to autumn hues,
Soon all her trees will be bare:
Oh! Darling, lest you lose
Your golden years for e’er…..

Come and stay!
No more right,
No more wrong:
Till the day
Turns to night,
Wingèd song!
